POEMS AT INDIEOMA



I have two poems up at Indieoma today. Indieoma is a commentary site with themed issues and they approached me recently to write non-fiction about various aspects of life, including one on feminism which will be up at the end of March. My poems today come under the theme of advertising.

This is how they describe their site:
"Our goal is to take an independent look at life through the prism of art and ideas. We all have our favorite music, film, art and politics sites that we check regularly; but we saw a missing piece – something comprehensive that ties it all together in some kind of context. For us, that context is your day-to-day life." More here.

My poems are here in their Guest Writer section.

Thanks Colm.

I like them both, Nuala. I didn't think he would take poetry, so that's a bonus.

Love how so much is jammed into the brevity of mannequin and pandemic's imagery.
Made me think of Mannequin Envy lit mag - they do great poems and art work too

Liz - the poem Mannequin Envy was first published on the Mannequin Envy site, last year sometime. It was the first place I tried with it!
Great minds...

Thanks, B. The poetry was a last minute thing - he had the deadline for advertising looming and a space to fill! But, maybe he'll be open to it again in future, which would be great.
